In brief – Harry Ingram

In this edition of ‘In brief’, we talk to Harry Ingram from England. Harry is a promising international rider in the UK, with a keen interest in the sport and its development.

Harry was recognised in the UK for topping the British combinations in the FEI World Rankings for 2016 with his horse, Warrens Hill Chayze. Other key achievements include a number of wins and top ten placings in 2016, 2015 and 2014, including winning the CEI1* competition at Haywood Oaks two years in a row, and being the top placed British rider at Royal Windsor Endurance in 2014.

Tell us your name and age:

Harry Ingram, age 24

Harry IngramWhere are you from?

Cheshire, United Kingdom

When did you start riding?

From the age of 5, and I’ve been in the sport of endurance riding for just over a decade.

Does riding run in the family?

No, I was the first to ride in my family and it was only by chance that I became an endurance rider. My first horse happened to be a grey Arab who caught the eye of our local endurance rider. She got me hooked on the sport and I have never looked back. It was the perfect fit for me, since I enjoy riding out with my horse over varied terrain, the sense of success after completing a real challenge and the thought of doing what I class as a real sport.

Harry IngramWhy endurance?

I have always been attracted to and followed endurance sports because of the determination and stamina involved. Endurance riding is the ultimate test of horse and rider in its purest form, based on some very simple principles of good horsemanship and sensible riding.

Do you own horses or do you ride for somebody else?

I own my own horses and only occasionally ride for other trainers. My real passion is training horses for the competitions, getting to know what works and what doesn’t. Each horse is an individual and I pride myself in taking time to understand that horse and giving them time to progress and develop.

What else do you enjoy?

In my spare time away from the horses I also enjoy running and skiing. I am also a director of Endurance GB and am incredibly passionate about growing this wonderful sport in the UK for more people to enjoy.
